For your understanding i can say the Eau de toilette is 10% base and 90% alcohol , this 10% base is imported here as concentrated perfumes, Normally Baldessarini lasts to 4 to 6 hours but if u wear the concentrated baldessarini which i do most often, it lasts daysssssssss rather than hours.
They are available in our local market costing 200 to 500 rupees for 10 to 12ml. These are sold as the alternative to perfumes with their names. if i can have your email address i will send you the pics and names of these. haven't you tried Arabian Ittar like Sultan , Al-Khaleeg, Fawake etc..? these are same in look but fragrance is changed.
I think pure parfum has alcohol in it -- it would smell odd otherwise -- where do you get these from and how much do they cost you??
I am talking about the concentrated perfume (the Eau De Perfume has only 20% prefume but concentrated is 100%) being created by very famous companies where top noses are employed and u can see the names of those companies followed by a perfumer's name in the introduction of various perfumes here in Basenotes. i am not mentioning the name deliberatly.
There is a difference between essential oils and concentrated perfume (do you mean eau de parfum?). Eau de parfum will have alcohol in it -- about 80-20 ratio. Eau de toilette is about 90-10. Essential oils are distilled by various methods, but wouldn't represent an actual perfume like Black Code. Do you mean Grasse in France? -- they are probably concretes or solids.
But when ever i wear this (we call it concentrated perfume) people recognize it as the relevant cologne , for instance if i wear concentrated Armani Code , one of my friend who uses original Alcohol based cologne of Black Code by Armani , immediately smiles and says u wearing code na ??....so as others.
This is a totally different industry originated from France , companies create the base.. and exports it as for industrial usage.
I tried Havana Reserva today ,,, it did not inspired me.
It shouldn't do -- having no alcohol in it --- I've never had any essential oils -- too viscous for me. Let me know. Also -- have never tried 'Havana' by Aramis, the tobacco note is supposed to be pretty good in it -- I like Tuscany.
